This is a story about one persons journey (myself) from an ordinary life where everything was safe. Where each week day was pretty much the same (we get wild on the weekends). Waking up at 6am for an hour of work followed by a morning run then back to work from 9am – 5pm and finally finishing off the day working another few hours at night for my other job. Yes, it varied here and there but this was pretty much how it was. This is not a bad way to live and is actually what many people strive for (at least the 9 to 5 part). I was lucky enough to have a job that I enjoyed going to everyday and being surrounded by people that I love, but now is the time to step out of the Davis bubble.
I’ve learned a lot living in Davis for 6 years. I came to college as a child believing that I knew so much and now I’m leaving knowing that I know so little. I’m excited to finally learn what no university could ever teach me, what the internet can’t show me and what words can’t explain to me. The only way is to: live it and do it.
I’ve been given the chance to do what I love, but in order to do that I had to let go of everything that I had, everything I thought I needed. This is living…. This is my dream, this is my life.
Inspiring bro. I know you’ve just done an awesome job on what I think is one of the coolest tours ever conducted by any group or organization. Good job for stepping out of safety! Well written!
